Baier Gets Lucky Against Van Loo

Jaxon • Level 28: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Alexander Baier

Alexander Baier jammed for 710,000 from the button and was called Tim Van Loo from the big blind.

Alexander Baier: {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Tim Van Loo: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

It was looking like showers for Baier but the poker gods had something else in mind.

The {8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{4-Spades} board gave Van Loo a set but Baier improved to a straight to double his short stack.

The final three players opted to go on a quick dinner break after the hand.
